So tomorrow, just after we’re all fat and happy from lunch, we get to get sprayed with Mace. O.C. spray. Pepper spray. Whatever you want to call it.
Can’t wait for that crap.
Yeah, yeah, I get the theory behind it: that we need to know what it’s like so if a bad guy ever gets our Mace and sprays us, we wont’ be totally paralyzed with surprise. We need to experience what we might have to do to someone.
Just like control tactics and ground fighting. We train in that stuff, we get to experience that stuff. Ditto Tazer training. Those who might do it to someone, who need to be certified in it, have to experience it.
I understand all that, I just don’t like it.
I guess my question is this: I am trained to shoot people.
So who gets to shoot me…you know…just so I can experience it?
